Test and Optimization of New Specific MRI Sequences on an Imager Dedicated to Research

2018-09-21 05:20:16 | BioPortfolio

Summary

Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) performance depends on equipment performance, equipment maintenance and relevance of MRI sequence used. To optimize MRI performance, it's necessary to develop, optimize, test and validate new acquisition sequences for enhanced diagnosis and therapy monitoring. These new sequences will allow better spatial resolution and specificity while reducing acquisition time.

Description

The purpose of the present study is to test and optimize, on healthy subjects, specific MRI acquisition sequences firstly developed in a preclinical phase on phantoms (inert objects containing solutions or gels) and animal (Pig, sheep). This study will allow the investigators to define practical acquisition parameters that will allow reproducible results and precise definition of clinically relevant examination protocols for each new developed sequence.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The use of molecularly targeted imaging probes to localize and/or monitor biochemical and cellular processes via various imaging modalities that include RADIONUCLIDE IMAGING; ULTRASONOGRAPHY; MAGNETIC RESONANCE IMAGING; fluorescence imaging; and MICROSCOPY.

A technique applicable to the wide variety of substances which exhibit paramagnetism because of the magnetic moments of unpaired electrons. The spectra are useful for detection and identification, for determination of electron structure, for study of interactions between molecules, and for measurement of nuclear spins and moments. (From McGraw-Hill Encyclopedia of Science and Technology, 7th edition) Electron nuclear double resonance (ENDOR) spectroscopy is a variant of the technique which can give enhanced resolution. Electron spin resonance analysis can now be used in vivo, including imaging applications such as MAGNETIC RESONANCE IMAGING.

Spectroscopic method of measuring the magnetic moment of elementary particles such as atomic nuclei, protons or electrons. It is employed in clinical applications such as NMR Tomography (MAGNETIC RESONANCE IMAGING).

A type of MAGNETIC RESONANCE IMAGING that uses only one nuclear spin excitation per image and therefore can obtain images in a fraction of a second rather than the minutes required in traditional MRI techniques. It is used in a variety of medical and scientific applications.

The creation of a visual display of the inside of the entire body of a human or animal for the purposes of diagnostic evaluation. This is most commonly achieved by using MAGNETIC RESONANCE IMAGING; or POSITRON EMISSION TOMOGRAPHY.
